Chapter Governance Bylaws

This past March, delegates made the historic decision to transition the House of Delegates to an Advisory Group, amending the ASSP bylaws to effect the change. ASSP has updated all governing documents to reflect this change, including the model chapter bylaws. Per the chapter affiliation agreement, chapters are required to maintain bylaws that are aligned with the model chapter bylaws. Chapter members will need to vote to amend our chapter’s bylaws to bring them into alignment with these updates. Please watch your inbox for an email to review the redline copy of our chapter’s bylaws with the proposed amendments and an e-ballot to vote on these changes.
